Hello everyone,

It is really strange that I have end up asking here this question. I want to apply visa for Pakistan to visit my parents. The London embassy does not take any visa application and everyone has to apply to a private company Gerry. I sent them a message asking visa fee and I got reply that they will charge 53 for the visa. The actual fee for Pakistani visa on a Spanish passport is about 20. I don't understand why I have to pay more administration fee than the actual visa fee. I tried to contact via phone, email to London, Birmingham and Bradford but out of luck. It looks like everything is out of contact. I just want to know that is it possible to apply visa for Pakistan from Birmingham consulate? Does anyone know? Thanks

Best regards,

Just get a NICOP as the user above mentioned. It is quite fast from the UK. Just check with Pakistan embassy. I'm sure you can find info on it on google. Give it a try

It used to be one day service for Pakistani Origin persons. You apply in the morning and collect in the afternoon. But last year they have started a ripping off venture with none other than Pakistani visa company to set up office far away from centre of London and embassy itself. So you use mandatory gerry visa service in Startford, East London to apply and get the visa.

If you are not in hurry, NICOP if are Pakistani dual national or POC if you or your parents dont have Pakistani citizenship, that will save you this hassle everytime you go to Pakistan.

Hope it helps
